A Fiber Teapot



21.5” x 25.0” x 6.0”

Materials & Techniques

Original printed imagery showing women of various ethnicities and races with raised arms in defiance of the intolerable status quo, mimicking the famous Rosy the Riveter. This fabric is quilted onto two panels of Foss Shape, a fabric that hardens when heated. The Foss Shape panels are sewn together using an original pattern to create the teapot design. The black balls that embellish the back and front panels are created from wet felted Merino wool. The side panels are airbrushed using black fabric paint.
